Love Announcements


This is one of my favorite photos as of late.  I just love my nieces & nephews.  These two cutie pies, Chloe & Jasper, recently visited me in New York.  Love them

Today, a few love announcements!

-Uniqlo collaborated with Orla Kiely to create some women's clothing - all inspired by her love for modern patterns and all things mid-century.  Danny bought me FOUR! shirts! (you should see him shopping for me....I could just melt.)

-Follow us on Twitter to see pics of the shirts Danny bought me, places we visit, things we love, things that inspire us, etc.

-Ikea has a new office supply line that is enticing me to go to Red Hook ASAP.

-Are you kidding me?  I love this bookend idea & need to get me some thrift store animal figurines.

-Muji now has all natural skin / organic care products.  (Bonus: seeing Asian symbols on your products.  I don't know why but I'm obsessed with Asian products.)
 -But more importantly, I am LOVING my new Apple Cider Vinegar routine (recommended by one of my favorite bloggers, The Daily Muse.)  It's like any crap on my face doesn't stand a chance.

-This phone cover caught my eye (I don't normally notice phone covers!)

-I looove this magnet idea!  

-If I was planning a party, the theme would be "sprinkles & confetti" - and I'd be making this.

-This glass cuff has my name on it...oh my...

...as does this collection of beaded cuffs (love!)

  1. This post totally made me smile when you got to the MUJI part! I live in Tokyo and pass a MUJI everyday when I go to the train station. Actually almost all of my furniture is from there too..and food...and toiletries... :)
    Anyways, since you say you like the Asian characters, here is your name and danny's name in Japanese!
    Mara= マラ
    Danny= ダニー

    ps. I found your blog sometime last week and I am so happy I did. You both have such amazing perspectives, advice, and experiences and I'm so grateful that you share them with us :)

    1. Thx, Charlotte! I am having a great week - though we've actually been faced with some difficult news from some family this week. But we're applying everything we talk about - and so there is still a lot of peace in our hearts. Hope your week has been great! & thx for reading!

    1. I know, right? If only it wasn't mad money. Can someone please teach us how to make these for cheap? :)

  7. Love that photo. I wish we made more time to spend with you on during that visit. And Ikea in Red Hook? Oh dear. I got out in time, otherwise I'd have a serious shopping issue.

  8. Jealous of your Orla Kiely for Uniqlo top...just popped on their site to pick one up and they don't offer e-commerce!! :( Lucky you. What a fabulous collaboration and you simply cannot beat that price point.

    1. OH - that's awesome! So good to hear. I don't ever want to miss that part of my routine. I think it's really making a difference. (Also - FYI - I don't even use cotton balls. I just use my hands to rub some on my face and it's working well. Might as well waste less.)
